Little Black Work Dress







Now that I’m back from Greece, I’m really getting back in the swing of things at work. (Even though I want to stay home with Chloe as much as I can!!) From getting things done in the office, to running around LA for meetings, it’s really important to look sophisticated & effortless at a moment’s notice. That’s why this banana republic dress is such a great little black dress for work! It’s professional enough for the office and meetings yet still casual enough to wear outside of the workplace! It’s really simple, and the cut is super flattering. The cuts on the side can make my legs look super long and lean. The eyelet detail on the dress also gives it a really breezy feeling, perfect for those hot summer days! And the way the collar is, I can easily see this piece transitioning into fall by simply adding a sweater or cardigan. The best part? It’s on sale! (Shop HERE.)

Okay, now let’s talk about these kitten heels. I used to hate them because I always thought they were for old ladies! My mom (@ummalim) used to wear them all the time and I would constantly make fun of her for it! But as my style has evolved, I’ve totally fallen in love with them! They add a delicate dainty look to every outfit and the stripes are a fun way to add a print to an outfit with out it being over powering!

Wishing you all an amazing Wednesday!

    haha when I first saw the photo I thought it looked similar to my Banana Republic top.. glad to see I was right 🙂
    love the look. I styled my top to be a little more street-style (http://www.suchastyle.com/black-mesh/)
    I love seeing it as a dress!

    I have always been a big fan of the kitten heel. It reminds me of my fashionable mom in the 60’s! These look amazing on you with the cute dress from BR. Obsessed in finding it now!

    My family and I were in Greece this summer too and had an amazing time. What places did you visit?

  • Devyn says:

    It’s funny how as we grow up, we start using things our moms wore that we originally found silly. I know I’m doing the same thing. As for a LBD, cannot go wrong! Great look.

    That little black dress is very pretty and I can definitely see how it would also work for fall weather. My favorite part of this outfit has to be those gorgeous striped kitten heels. The bow in the front is very pretty and they add a nice contrast to your outfit.
